SHORES OF THE MITTEN ANIMAL RESCUE AND TRANSPORT - PROVIDING ANIMALS WITH SANCTUARY
Shores of the Mitten Animal Rescue and Transport (dba SMART Paws) is an animal rescue in the Great Lakes Bay region of Michigan that was established in 2015. As a rescue, we are currently operating in foster-based homes and are limited solely by the number of homes we have available. In addition to increasing our ability to take in and care for animals that we plan on placing in suitable, loving homes, our long term goal is to build a sanctuary for animals that require lifetime care and protection. Currently we are expanding our foster network, building relationships with other rescues and shelters, developing community education outreach programs, and providing rehabilitation services for wildlife that we are allowed by state law to take in. In our sanctuary, we plan to design and create environments that are optimal for the individual needs of animals with plenty of human interaction and lots of space to explore, play, and rest. We will also focus on sound animal nutrition and optimal health care practices. SMART Paws is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Promoting nutrition, alternative healthcare, networking, and transport to give animals every chance at a better life. We believe that all animals, regardless of condition and circumstances, deserve a right to a full and good life, and our goal is to build a sanctuary for those animals that require lifetime care and protection.
